Indosole's mission is to salvage discarded tires from landfills and give them new life as footwear. indosole.com

Each year, over 1 billion waste tires are thrown into landfills worldwide. 

Indosole inspires a lifestyle of resourceful creation through footwear made with re-purposed tires.

In 2008 two Californians (Faye and Kyle) took an influential trip to Bali, Indonesia. While there, they were struck by the amount of pollution on the island, and had the idea to partner with Balinese artisans to make footwear from discarded motorbike tires. For every two pairs of shoes that are made, one tire is saved from a landfill.

So far, Indosole has grown as a grassroots business with low-volume shipments of sandals and shoes, produced on our own dime. Now, demand is growing, and Indosole needs your help to deliver footwear to its worldwide customer base.

Our goal is to manufacture 5000 pairs of shoes for spring/summer 2013 with the funds that you help us raise on Kickstarter. This will fuel our sales demand and also provide cash flow for Indosole to continue to grow.

With your help, we can produce more shoes to meet our goals, and more shoes means more jobs – both for our team in Indonesia, and in the USA. 

Thank you so much for your support,

Kyle, Faye & Indosole
